Competenz can provide training plans, support and qualifications – tailored to your businesses specific needs.

How we work with you

We partner with your industry association PrintNZ and members of your industry to help recruit and build talented employees. This support includes promoting careers in your industry and identifying potential apprentices and encouraging work placements.

We also ensure your industry’s qualifications continue to meet needs, support industry events like the annual PrintNZ conference and celebrate your learners’ success, including as a joint venture partner in the annual Print Industry Apprentice of the Year Award.

When apprentices enrol, we assign them a Competenz training advisor. Our training advisors understand the printing industry and the skills learners and businesses need.
